An early-morning breakfast
shared with sun, son, and hubby
warms me through and through
in chills of a frigid wintertime.
Unlike any other comforters
warmth of delicious food
and pleasant conversation
comforts body and soul hunger.
The cozy restaurant’s sign,
SunnySide, stirs a settled smile.
That same sign dwells inside me,
marks my heart, the keeper of
all deep loves – you, you, and you.
It’s easy to share this settled smile
as our waitress wandered through,
“May I top off your coffee?”
“Yes, thank you.”
